I got at brand new Sieg SX2.7L. The fine feed will not disengage, This gives a lot of resistance when trying to drill. Tried to remove the handle for engaging the fine feed, Any idea will be helpfull,

Have you swung the small handle out to give you suitable leverage to undo the fine feed knob, you may not be able to undo it just using the handwheel.

Also check that the quill lock on the left hand side of the head is not in the "locked" position.

One other thing that can make the quill sticky is the slide for the quill DRO where it attaches to the bracket on the quill, when the nuts are tightened they can throw it off line and it binds. A washer under each nut helps to solve this.

I can remowe the handle for locking and the fine feed is still locked together with the large handles

When i insert a magnetic screwdriver the pin and a 8 mm ball comes out.

If i insert all parts again and tightens both fine feed and large handles becomes very hard to move.

Just been talking to Arceurotrade. They have been very helpfull. I got instructions to remove the fine feed and lubricate it. The machine is OK but for anyone else having the same problems. The machine just need breaking in. I also got the SX2p from ARC - that machine is more loose from start.

So i will let the chips fly. angel

You say it is brand new mill, so presumably still under warranty in which case perhaps returning to the supplier for them to sort or replace with another mill would be best ?

I have read on the forum that dismantling a new item can invalidate the warranty ?

The mill is brand new. I was informed that the machine needs to be worn in before it will work smooth. The problem with a machine like SX2.7 is the weight. It is not easy to ship et back. I used a manual crane to put it on my worktable. So i will try to work with it in the coming weeks to see if it will loosen up. I was told that the demo mill had similar friction.

I will make a new post about the progress when i have put some hours in the machine.

Seems like you are sorted - I find Ian is more than helpful.

The thread reads a tad strange as I was posting my earlier comment at the same time as you so was not aware that you had contacted them.

Ian off ill? Just not good enoughsmiley Shouldn't be allowed!smiley

Is Brett the young lad on the counter last time I was visiting?

Seriously, I hope Ian is soon back, firing on all cylinders.

As I see it, communication with the supplier is the most important bit, with any problems such as this and the best course of action initially. Arc can decide/advise/agree on the best course of remedial action - likely a more cost effective route (if small parts actually needed replacement would to do it in situ) rather than returning the whole item to the supplier.

Unscrewing a knob, which appears to need no tools for removal, does not seem (to me) )to be any reason for denial of warranty!

Brett will point himself out when you visit next ... Ian is back today.

If one sees this exploaded parts diagram, the issue was relating to 'the fit' of part 16 onto shaft 17 which is a little tight.

The reply and help from Ketan is proof enough why I will only buy from them, as Ian knows well.
